Albion Records is the recording label of the Ralph Vaughan Williams Society. It was formed in 2007 and is devoted to recordings of works by Vaughan Williams. Each recording contains at least one first recording. Two albums - The Solent and Discoveries - were nominated for a Grammy award, and many recordings have spent some weeks in the UK’s specialist classical chart.
